Japanese font and kanji generators
If you have an opportunity to create your own website (business and private) or printables, and you want to add Japanese calligraphy characters or kanji, there are several Japanese/Kanji font generators available online. I’d like to introduce some that seem to be interesting;
- FREE JAPANESE FONTS
Over 200 Japanese fonts including kanji, hiragana, katakana available. You will be able to find very rare fonts.
- KANJI NAME GENERATOR
You can enter your name in English and it will be converted to Japanese kanji and katakana. It also tells you the meaning of each kanji character.
- KANJI NAME MAKER
You can enter your name in English and it will be converted to Japanese kanji with the meaning of each kanji character. You can download the generated image and directly post it to your SNS.
They’re not handwritten calligraphy letters as such, but some of them have the characteristics of brush strokes. The sites may be useful for exploring the fonts that suit the atmosphere of your work. It’s also fun to just enter words you like and then see the characters and fonts generated. There are also rare fonts that most Japanese don’t know!
Please note that each website has it’s own usage policy. If you plan to use the data, especially for commercial use, please check their terms of usage for details.
